"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Mohandas Gandhi

Nonprofit organizations are sometimes referred to as voluntary organizations. Their existence is dependent upon citizen participation as volunteers. Without volunteers who serve as board members, the organization would not be established. Volunteers help deliver programs and services and they serve as the backbone of the organization’s fundraising efforts. Volunteers are one of the most valuable resources of the organization. Therefore, building a strong volunteer program enhances the strength of the nonprofit organization.

This two-day workshop series is designed to meet the needs of the next generation of volunteer managers.

Attendees will learn techniques for recruiting, training, placing, retaining, and rewarding volunteers, as well as ways to increase the teamwork with staff in organizations. The sessions will utilize interactive group exercises, case studies, and the integration of sample policies and tools to ground the learning principles in practical application.

To earn the Certificate in Volunteer Management from the Rollins College Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership, participants must attend both sessions in their entirety.


Cost: $330 members, $660 non-members
